How would you handle a differing opinion from another experienced Engineer.

Let him explain his position in detail. Agree with as much as I can, using "I" statements, never using "I don't think YOU. . ." Additionally, I use alot of diagram detail to explain my positions, which proves confidence and most people are visual learners. Less


If water in a well rises 2 feet each day and falls 1 foot each night, how long til the water reaches the top of a 10 foot well

9 Answers

It will reach the top on the 9th day, the question only asks about reaching the top and not remaining at a 10 foot level. The level will be 8 ft at the end of 8th day and then it will go up to 10ft the next day; day 9. Less

every day it rises 2 feet during the day and one feet at night it drops basically it rises only 1 foot each day and shall take 10 days to get to 10 feet. Less

net gain per day of 1 ft, with a peak gain of 2 ft. If day=12 hrs and night = 12 hrs, then the peak on day 9 will reach the 10 ft mark, or 8.5 days Less

Unless you are using TCP with an orienting sub, or some gyro method with wireline guns, you cannot orient wireline guns. I have not heard of any orietation for wireline guns. Guns run on wireline, assuming equally balanced, will rotate as per well geometry with turn and when blindly perfingbat 2000 ft and 200 ft the holes will be oriented differently. Less

What was your best McGuyver moment?

6 Answers

This question is just a creative way to ask you how you solved a problem at work that required you to think outside the box, improvise or invent a solution that was not proposed by someone else. Proper preparation for this question is identifying a significant project where you had substantial impact on the success of the outcome, hopefully by identifying a solution on your own. Less

You are hiking through the jungle and stumble across a treasure chest in a 9ft DIA, 11 ft deep hole. List solutions to the retrieval of the treasure chest.

5 Answers

I will try to get a ladder or tie a rope to a tree nearby, go down the hole and carry the treasure chest in my hands out of the hole. The point is they have not mentioned anything about the treasure chest size. So i will presume it to be a small size chest. Less

Dig a slot on the edge of the hole to 11ft outside maybe and make a ramp. It will give you a 45degree slope to go down and pull the chest up. Less

Don't do anything. Call for help
